Great little restaurant in a hidden nook of town. Family member from the area recommended this place a++. The food was hot hot and so tasty. Definitely a place to go! Only thing that could happy would be smaller portions. And that's not a bad thing I was way to full at half my meal. Going again

I can't say enough about The Olive Tree! We go there a lot, and have never been disappointed. The service is top notch, decor is beautiful, and the food....incredible. Everything is fresh and tasty and presented beautifully. The portion sizes are perfect as well. Prices are excellent as well. I would highly recommend The Olive Tree for lunch with friends,... More

I ate here just a couple of times. The portions are quite large and what I had was very good. I'm not sure if it's still the same but there was a time when you had to make a reservation on the weekend. The Olive Tree has a very solid reputation. I am local and have never heard anything negative.... More

This is one of the best places to dine in Sydney. It isn't a large place so make sure you have a reservation! Enjoy!
